You have not pointed out what type of program are you using for DVD authoring. The option to finalize the disc is usually provided when you start burning.
I have an alternate solution for you which is easier. You can use the Windows DVD maker available in Vista Home Premium. This way you will not have to manually finalize the disc; it will take care of it itself.
Remember to install codecs such as k-lite basic coded pack for trouble free work with different formats. Then run DVD maker from the start menu. A tutorial can be accessed here.
Note that DVDs created by DVD maker can be played on most DVD players and on computer as well.
The Windows DVD Maker can store approximately 150 minutes of video on a single-layer DVD and approximately 300 minutes on a dual-layer DVD. An entire season will be well over either of those limits. You can try to shorten each episode by removing commercials with Windows Movie Maker first. This should make each episode somewhere between 45 and 50 minutes in length. Then you can try to fit as many as possible onto each DVD (you will still require multiple DVDs for this) while keeping it under the 150 or 300 minute limit.
now a day, no installation CD or DVD come with any of the new laptop anymore. you need to make a backup copy of the operating system when you first fired it up. if yu did. you still can make a backup from programs>accessories>backup.
but since the laptop is DOA. look for your receipt, the laptop should have one year warranty from best-buy. if not it should be have the warrant from DELL.
since you don't have the DVD. you can request one from DELL.
